[Seaside] SushiStore removed from Seaside

The latest version of Seaside 2.8 does no longer include the Sushi
Store. The Sushi Store had several problems, it is quite big which
makes not easy to focus on the important parts while ignoring the
unimportant ones. Additionally it isn't really a good example of a
Seaside application because it uses Seaside 2.5 or older idioms.
Finally it was badly maintained. The code can now be found in the new
Seaside examples repository [1]. There are also other examples
including some from Websh [2] (don't ask). They still need
documentation but that will change. The idea of these examples are
that they are minimal and focus on one concept only. They are not
supposed to look cool or offer some fancy functionality that has
nothing to do with the subject. If you have cool and short examples
from somewhere else like other frameworks that would make sense for
Seaside please inform us about them or even better, implement them
yourself. The repository has public write access.

Personally I would welcome it if GemStone and Cincom would take over
Sushi Store, modernize and modularize it so that they can use it to
show off their persistence solutions. This way customers could side by
side compare and choose what is most appropriate for them. A magma
version would certainly be appreciated as well.
